Guild Hall Repairs

As you will have noticed there is extensive scaffolding at the Guild Hall. This has been provided to protect people walking along the public footpath because of deteriorating stonework and the possibility of falling stonework and mortar. This decay of the stonework is due to age and the orientation of the Guildhall which suffers from driving rain, which over the years has weakened the soft Bath stone.Investigations by an expert building conservation company have indicated significant damage has been caused.

About the East Looe Town Trust

The East Looe Town Trust, a registered charity, owns open areas such as the East Looe Beach and Seafront and the Wooldown, as well as buildings, including the Old Guildhall and Gaol, which houses the Museum, the “new” (1878) Guildhall and a number of other properties.

The Trust is responsible for the maintenance of all these areas and buildings for the benefit of the community now and in the future. We have three members of staff, one in the office and two keeping the public areas looking attractive and the buildings in a proper state of repair. All of this can be expensive and we receive no grant from Cornwall Council or Looe Town Council for these purposes. Our income derives mainly from leases and the seafront carpark which, accompanied by constant downward pressure on costs, enable us (just) to balance the books. Where funds are available we make modest local charitable donations.

We are often surprised by some of the issues that we have to deal with like waste removal and bathing water quality but it all serves to keep us on our toes! We strive to work cooperatively with the town’s other bodies and the benefits of that are seen in developments like the Looe Bathing Water Quality Partnership.

We try to keep the public informed on our website and through social media. We welcome interest and enquiries and, within our limited resources will try to respond as best we can.
